Default Chapter 4 - CarBean.java

I am trying to use a javaBean with Tomcat 4.1.27. I can not get it to work by following the instructions on page 78 of the Beginning JSP Web Development book released in 2001. I think the instructions are outdated.

Could someone please explain to me where I should save the CarBean.java file if I make it part of the package com.wrox.cars;

I will be invoking it from the following web page at url:
Here is carPage.jsp:
        <title>Using a JavaBean</title>

    <h2>Using a JavaBean</h2>

    <% com.wrox.cars.CarBean myCar = new com.wrox.cars.CarBean(); %>
    I own a <%= myCar.getMake() %> <br />
    <% myCar.setMake("Porche"); %>
    Now I own a <%= myCar.getMake()%>

Here is CarBean.java:
package com.wrox.cars;

import java.io.Serializable;

public class CarBean implements Serializable{

    public CarBean(){

    private String make = "Ford";

    public String getMake(){
        return make;

    public void setMake(String make){
    this.make = make;

I changed the properties of file Web-inf to be share as WEB-INF.
This fixed the problem I was having.
